In order to interpret and to work in compliance with EKH work instructions in the correct manner, these inspectors are required to have the proper qualifications. To this end, EKH has set up effective training programmes for inspectors of lifting gear. After following this training programme, inspectors take an exam that must result in them attaining a personal certificate. The exams take place under the supervision of DNV-GL.
As part of the quality assurance, inspectors need to attend refresher courses and re-certification is required to take place every 5 years. During this period of 5 years, random checks are carried out by an independent auditor to ensure quality of the work carried out by inspectors!
